Leeds vs Fulham Prediction & Betting tips
On Saturday afternoon at 15:00 p.m., the newcomer duel will kick off on Elland Road in Leeds. Although the two Premier League returnees suffered a defeat on the first day of the game, the performance offered could not be compared. Accordingly, according to current odds, Leeds against Fulham is also the clear favorite on Saturday afternoon.
The Bielsa-Elf made for a real spectacle on Anfield and only had to admit defeat to last year’s Dominator extremely unlucky. The Cottagers from the West London district of Fulham were lost in the derby against Arsenal and had no chance.
In addition to the preview and tip recommendation for the Saturday afternoon game, fans of English football should take a look at our tip category Premier League.
West Yorkshire peacock fans have had to be brave these past few years. The former top club went through difficult times and was at times only third-rate. But after 16 years the long-awaited return to the Premier League finally succeeded. Despite great ambitions, the primary goal is to assert oneself in the league and put the relegation battle aside as early as possible.
After 16 years of waiting, Leeds had to – or was allowed to – make the journey to become reigning champions. The blatant underdog did not value destructive football, but wanted to do his part to make the game a true football festival. This project succeeded in any case, although the defeat with 3: 4 (three Salah hits) was extremely bitter.
Leeds’ first appearance in the Premier League was definitely the best advertisement for football and showed that the team of tactical fox Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t have to hide from anyone. The efficiency was outstanding because all three shots on goal were successful.
In the promotion year 2019/20, only 31 percent of the shots on goal were a hit – this meant the fourth-lowest value in the Champoinship. However, these figures clearly show that Leeds are a team that keep coming up with scoring opportunities. Games with many goals will be played more often in 2020/21.
A Saturday afternoon defeat would mean that Leeds would start with two defeats for the first time since the 1980/81 season in the English House of Lords. A home defeat at the start of a Premier League season is a real rarity. In the twelve previous PL seasons, Leeds only went bankrupt in 1996 against Sheffield in their own stadium, otherwise they have eight wins and three draws on the credit side.
It is not uncommon to see that a Premier League relegated team has big problems in the championship and has to fight again to stay in the league. The cottagers of young coach Scott Parker (former professional) did not have any major problems with the changeover and underpinned their ambitions for a direct return from the start. In the play-off final against Brentford – a London city derby – Fulham succeeded in the extension of promotion.
In the horror season 2018/19 (only seven wins), a transfer minus of over 100 million euros was earned, but there was still the desolation to cope with. It seems that the club’s management learned from the mistakes they made back then and did not try to form a completely new team during this transfer period. The Cottagers continue to count on the majority of the rise heroes and have not had to deal with a single significant departure.
Newcomers were not completely waived, but the previous commitments make sense and represent a selective reinforcement (Areola, Reed, Tete, Aina) in the fight to remain in the league.
The Cottagers started the league against city rivals Arsenal and suffered a 3-0 defeat – the 15th defeat in the last 19 Premier League games. Although the Parker-Elf acted at eye level at times, the difference in quality could be seen in the decisive moments.
The team gained self-confidence during the week when Fulham defeated second division Ipswich Town 1-0 in the Carabao Cup.
